3. Feeling overwhelmed?

Choosing an employee perk and vendor can be a difficult task, especially when there are endless options and you want to deliver the best possible one to your employees as part of their lifestyle benefits. However, since employees are different from each other, there is no one "perfect and cool" perk that will make everyone happy.

Don't sweat it!

We want to help you make the right decision so we've compiled a list of resources to help you choose the best perks:

The Top Three Employee Perks

  1. Flexibility: Who doesn't like having the flexibility to work in their optimal environment? Trust your employees by giving them the flexibility to choose their work location and hours, and they'll feel more motivated and eager to work.
  2. Wellness Initiatives: Our bodies are temples, so we should treat them that way! It's a good feeling to know your workplace cares about your health. Through company-organized initiatives and programs that are focused on true wellness, employees become more appreciated, more mindful, and of course, more productive. 
  3. Lifestyle Spending Accounts: We've saved the best for last. These programs give the power and freedom to the employee to choose what they feel is best for their life. Read more about Lifestyle Spending Accounts

The best companies are those that recognize that their employees are all different and that their perks should be too. These organizations are now adopting Lifestyle Spending Accounts (LSAs). With LSAs, employees are given an employer-contributed account for them to purchase whatever perks are best for them and their needs.
